Teleclass: Avoid the Summer Slide with Simple and Fun Brain Exercises

6-17-13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

During the summer, kids experience a dramatic drop in academic functioning, no matter their age. What’s a parent to do?

Help your child develop a stronger cognitive foundation with some simple and fun brain exercises that can be done at home or in the car! Cognitive skills such as attention, processing speed, and memory are the building blocks for every learner. This tele-class will explain the importance of cognitive skill functioning in your child’s life and give you tips on how to challenge and strengthen these skills on a daily basis.

Find out answers to important, basic questions such as: How can I get my child to pay attention longer? Why does my child remember the first thing I ask her to do, but forgets the second thing? How do I help my child think faster and more efficiently?

Join Rich Mancuso, Executive Director of LearningRx NYC-UESour generous sponsor for this important teleclass on how your children learn, and what you can do with them over the summer to keep their brains sharp to avoid the infamous ‘summer slide’.

Rich Mancuso is the Center Director and Owner of LearningRx NYC on the Upper East Side. As a parent of two teenage boys struggling with Dyslexia and ADHD, Rich spent years searching for ways to target and fix the underlying issues holding his sons back. He found this solution in LearningRx. Inspired by the program’s impact on their performances in school and in their daily lives, Rich became a staunch advocate of the life-changing effects of cognitive remediation. Since opening the first NYC LearningRx center in 2010, Rich and his team of learning specialists continue to help children and adults across the learning spectrum.

*You will receive dial-in information upon completing your registration.
